Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (Spanish: Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación; MINCYT) of Argentina was a ministry of the national executive power that oversaw the government's scientific and technological policy. It oversaw decentralized research and development dependencies such as the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), the National Agency for the Promotion of Research, Technological Development and Innovation (Agencia I+D+i), the National Space Activities Commission (CONAE) and the National Genetic Data Bank.

The Ministry was created in 2007 by decree of then-President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner; matters of science and technological development had previously been part of the Ministry of Education's portfolio.

The ministry was dissolved on December 10, 2023 following a presidential decree from President Javier Milei.
